Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that Revenge of the Sith is the third and final film in the Star Wars prequel trilogy and contains a few moments of graphic violence, as well as the transformation of a beloved character from good to bad. The movie chronicles the fall of Anakin Skywalker and his transformation into Darth Vader. The plot and characters grapple with some complicated moral issues and occasionally embrace shades of grey. In a sequence of surprising detail for a Star Wars film, viewers see Anakin burn in a pit of lava, with his skin turning into cinders. We recommend extreme caution and consideration when deciding whether younger children can handle viewing something that's this emotionally and graphically violent.

Sexual Content

Two of the film's leads are secretly married, and there are occasional romantic moments and mild kissing. The female lead is pregnant and gives birth on screen near the end of the film in a relatively antiseptic sequence with no graphic depictions of the birthing process.

Violence

As with other entries in the series, the violence in this film is primarily centered around sci-fi battles in space and characters using blasters and laser swords. But there are a few powerful moments of specific violence -- for example the off-screen death of children and the beheading of a central villain. Perhaps most graphic is the final visual transformation of the film's hero into an iconic villain, which begins with the character burning on screen in a lava pit before being grafted to robotic arms and legs, all while visibly squirming and screaming in pain. It's a disturbing sequence; only you know if your kids are ready to experience it.

Language

Not applicable

Social Behavior

Unlike other films in the series, the messages in this installment aren't quite as clear, perhaps because the storyline focuses so sharply on a leading character's fall from grace, so the movie must embrace shades of grey in terms of morality. At the same time, the lines between good and evil are clearly defined, even if evil seems to win in the film's final act.

Consumerism

Although there's no real-world product placement in the film, this series is known for its extreme merchandising, encompassing everything from toys and books to backpacks, clothing, and school supplies for children.
